The Active Ones Take It All

Hey, you! Yes.. you! Are you still delaying that wonderful idea you may have been nursing for a while now? Have you been hesitating on starting that business, journey, career, course, or work you have  to do?

Have you identified a favorable opportunity, but you've not been able to utilize it because you're thinking too much about it? Then this article is for you. I want you to bear this at the back of your mind: "The active ones take it all."

Life offers everything to the ones who are active. Life doesn't care about your intention or what you're thinking of doing. It cares about what you're doing!

Let's say there are two people who intend to start a similar business, let's say it's a small restaurant. One of them has been nursing the idea for a long time and is very passionate about it. He keeps thinking and thinking of how to start up the business and get everything ready but has done nothing yet.

The other one also nurses the idea though he…

THOUGHT COMES FIRST

Thought comes first before actions

Have you ever thought about why you were born naked into this world without anything like weapons, tools, books or anything else but your mind?

If you've ever thought deeply about that
question, you may have understood that God, the creator, put us into this world with only our minds because that's really the totality of everything that we'd need to take decisions here on earth which would either sustain us or destroy us.

Everything you've ever done originates from your thought. It is impossible to take an action that you've not at least given a slightest thought to. Hence, it is very important to take our thoughts seriously because wrong thought processes will inevitably lead to wrong actions being taken.

Our minds analyse and process information just like a computer system. It needs time to come up with the best results. Taking sufficient time to think first before taking any action has proven to be very fruitful.

Once the mind is stimulated with the right information and allowed time to process it through deep thought, we usually come up with the very best decision.

Most people face various challenges and problems in their lives today simply because they don't think deeply enough. They usually approach their problems the same way other people do and they keep following the same pattern laid out by others.

This habit of following the crowd mentality kills the creativity of our individual thinking and we use our brains lesser and mechanically do what others are doing without deep thought.

I am thoroughly convinced that there is no problem in this world which cannot be solved by a clear thought process and a decisive action. None! Our problems are prevalent simply because very few of us think for ourselves nowadays. It appears all the thinking has already been done by others, so why bother?

We often forget that those who have solved problems and made wonderful innovations have achieved that by simply 'thinking differently' which is deeper than the surface. They didn't follow the laid out thinking pattern of their generation rather they applied their God given minds to think differently and consequently, they were rewarded with impressive answers.

Abraham Lincoln once said, "If I have six hours to cut down a tree with an axe, I'll spend the first four sharpening the axe."

I thought about the wisdom in that quote. Only a very smart person would consider that. Think about it for a second. Given that axe and the limited time, most people will immediately start trying to cut down the tree not minding of the axe was blunt.

Funny enough, these people would use all their energy to cut down the tree, but their hardest efforts would produce very little results and at the end of the day, they may not accomplish much.

But the smart person given the axe would first think deeply. Think about the best way to cut the tree down and the requirements needed. In this thinking his mind convinces him that he should take time to sharpen his axe so his work is made much easier. The result? He cuts down the tree with so much ease and little effort.

That is the reward of one who constantly utilises this precious gift from the creator to solve problems. He is always rewarded with extra time, wealth and health while the one who does not suffers for it.

The suffering itself is only there to point to the individual that he is not using his thinking ability effectively and should rather change his approach.

The mind is our most powerful weapon.

We must use it to solve our problems.

The boldwinner understands that in solving any problem, deep thought would always comes first before any action is taken.

Until next time..

Why You Should Be Careful With An "I don't Care" Attitude

You've probably heard people say things like "I don't care what anybody thinks." "I don't give a damn" "I don't care anymore" and other words like that. The "I don't care" attitude is becoming quite popular and of course it comes with a good feeling.

This attitude can actually be helpful if it motivates you to keep trying where other people have failed or it helps you become a better and a much happier person. But sometimes, this attitude can arise out of pure stubbornness and laziness.

Many relationships among people have failed because of this. Some people don't care at all about another person but just themselves and their needs forgetting that their needs are dependent on the needs of other people.

It is important to actually care to know the truth and properly look into our consciences before we adopt an I don't care attitude towards anything. Are you adopting it because you are convinced you're on a right t…

What Happened To Victor Pride of Bold and Determined?

So after so many months without visiting his blog, I tried to visit boldanddetermined.com for some fired up articles only to get a surprise.. that the blog has been permanently closed and then there's podcast following from Vic Pride (now Brother Nicholas) claiming that He's now Born again and has given his life to Jesus Christ.
I didn't know how to feel. Whether it's good news or bad news will ultimately be up to us, but I just think I should share my thoughts about it here. But before that a brief background story.
Victor Pride has been running the motivational blog bold and determined since 2011 and he has actually inspired and motivated a lot of young men and women to break out lazy attitudes/habits to live the life of their dreams. 
Even though, I never really agreed with quite a number of his ideas about God, religion, the government, women etc, I still saw the truth in some of the things he said. And he had a very unique way of writing with gives you that adrenalin…

The Definition Of A True Woman

Previously, I wrote an article on the definition of a true man. It would be fair enough to also write and article for the women who read this blog.

Women are beautiful, lovely and sensitive creatures way different from men in a lot of things both mentally and physically. They are special in their own way and also play very important roles in our society.

Just like in the case of the men, value systems seem to be changing for women too.

Most women seem to rate themselves these days based mainly on their looks. They spend so much time and money in ensuring they look very good, clean and posh. They can do anything to look attractive and get attention.

Some even go to the extent of almost going nude on social media just to feel good about themselves and get reassuring likes.

Painfully, most of these same women don't pay attention to what is inside of them. They often neglect the unseen qualities which make them who they truly are.

There are some women who boast about how many men the…
